Fresh for 2020, New Mazda2 boasts a number of style enhancements and high-tech features never before available in the small car segment. Before it launches, here’s everything you need to know about the New Mazda2.
On sale from the start of December and starting at $20,990 for the G15 Pure, New Mazda2 takes its sophisticated styling cues from Mazda6 and Mazda3. Sporting a more mature expression of the acclaimed Kodo design language that favours a clean, stripped back aesthetic.
A Higher Standard of Design
Accentuating Mazda2’s low, wide stance, the signature wing has been extended to the base of the headlamps and the chrome thickened, encasing a new mesh grille. Front and rear lower bumper sections are more horizontally aligned, with detailing at the outer edges adding a more premium finishing touch and greater road presence.
Fog lamps have been integrated into a new, sleek LED headlamp design with a large cylindrical lighting element giving a sharp expression that falls into the same design family as the rest of the Mazda range.
Finished in a high gloss paint, 16-inch wheels take on an elegant straight spoke design, while 15-inch wheels feature a new silver finish.
While inside the cabin, fresh colour palettes add unique character to each grade; G15 Pure is available with Brown cloth, G15 Evolve has dark Navy cloth and G15 GT sports a newly developed Blue Grey leather with Granluxe™ synthetic suede.
Connectivity that doesn't compromise
Adding to the convenience, Mazda2 adds Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ and bolsters safety, adding a host of i-Activsense Technologies added as standard, including Blind Spot Monitoring (BSM), Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA), Lane-keep Assist System (LAS) and pedestrian detection for Smart City Brake Support (SCBS).
Mazda2 also comes with a 360º View Monitor on G15 GT models, giving drivers peace of mind with four separate cameras working together to provide a complete bird’s eye view of the vehicle, minimising blind spots and avoiding potential dangers.
Performance that takes charge
Mazda has also applied the principles of its new generation Skyactiv-Vehicle Architecture to the update, introducing a new seating structure that better supports the natural S-curve of the spine for improved comfort. The latest Skyactiv-Vehicle Dynamics technology has also been deployed, with G-Vectoring Control Plus (GVC Plus) helping to improve handling and vehicle stability.
The highly efficient Skyactiv-G 1.5L petrol engine has been revised too, with updates made to quicken response, reduce harmful substances in exhaust emissions, and improve power and torque output. Power is boosted from 79kW to 82kW, while pulling power increases from 139Nm to
The updated Mazda2 is available in a choice of sedan or hatch and in three model grades, G15 Pure, G15 Evolve and G15 GT, with manual and automatic transmissions both offered.
Finally, Mazda2 is available with Mazda’s five-year unlimited kilometre warranty and five-year Mazda Premium Roadside Assistance as standard.
